Diabetes is a leading cause of premature deaths. Most common type of diabetes, type-2 diabetes, usually begins when a person is in his or her 40s, but diabetes is not inevitable. Minor changes in your life-style can greatly reduce your chances of getting this disease. Diabetes is a disorder in which the body does not use the sugars in food in the usual way. Normally, digested food, changes into glucose, which body uses for fuel. Blood carries glucose to the cells where a hormone called insulin allows it to enter the cells. Type-2 diabetics produce too little insulin in response to a given glucose load in a meal or resistant to insulin action and or dump excess glucose from the liver. High levels of blood glucose lead to serious complications. Type-2 diabetes is a non-communicable disease with increasing prevalence at a global level. As healthy dietary pattern has beneficial effects on both human health and regarding the development and treatment of type-2 diabetes, promoting adherence to this pattern is of considerable public health importance. Type-2 diabetes if not properly managed, can lead to: Heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, blindness, peripheral nerve damage, leg and foot amputations and death.
